I had the only chain saw in the hood. Had to clear stuff so neighbors could get out of their drive ways. Then again only 2 of us still mow our own lawns. Boy Scouts tought me to "Be Prepared" not to many scouts in the hood.I filled all the vessels with gas before the storm. What I didn't realize is how hard it is to siphon gas these days as all the cars have antisiphoning blocks. Day 2 I needed gas for the generator as did my neighbor 1/4 inch line was all we could get in the tank. He never tasted gasoline but when he did I told him "At least it had alcohol in it" when I was a yout it only had lead.

Yep, there are a lot of soft people out there.
We were prepared but we also learned alot about disaster preparedness from this storm.
Some day if the fudge really hits the fan we'll see who's smart enough and strong enough to survive.

Owning and maintaining the Norton probably had something to do with your pragmatism as well.

You might be on to something there.

Brit bike ownership as a path to disaster preparedness.

Yes, riding a Norton you have to be prepared for almost anything. Im constantly amazed how many people get through life not knowing how to use a screwdriver
